You may not buy that your Klout score matters. Too bad. Employers and bosses do pay attention to the social network “Standard for Influence” measurements. And, since Klout has just changed its scoring system and is adding new features. you should too.
In a blog posting by Klout CEO Joe Fernandez, he announced that “we’re introducing some of the most significant product updates in Klout’s history. With these updates, we’ve concentrated on helping everyone to gain a clearer, more accurate understanding of how they influence other people through the ideas they share.”
Specifically, “The updated Klout Score now includes significantly broader data sets and signals, including our first steps towards including real-world influence. We now include many more actions from Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and more, and for the first time incorporate Wikipedia as a signal.”
